JL Audio Introduces XD500/3 – NEW 3-Ch Amp for Smaller Systems

Press Release,

JL Audio’s XD amplifiers set a new standard for compactness and world-class fidelity when they were introduced in 2010. Expanding this popular series further, JL Audio is now introducing the XD500/3, a three-channel, 500-watt amplifier designed to power a component speaker system plus a subwoofer system.
JL Audio’s highly efficient NexD™ switching amplifier technology allows the XD500/3 to produce huge power from a very compact package. The main channels produce 150-200W total, giving high-quality component speakers plenty of clean power to work at their best, while the dedicated subwoofer channel can produce up to 300W of clean, low-frequency power.
“This is a perfect amplifier for powering simpler systems in pickup trucks, sports cars or any application with a single component system plus a subwoofer.”, said JL Audio’s VP-Marketing, Manville Smith. “Because of its tiny size, reasonable price and impressive efficiency, we expect that it will also become very popular for motorcycle and other Power sports applications.”

Beneath the XD500/3’s extruded aluminum control cover is a full complement of studio-grade signal processing features, including fully variable crossover filters (with variable slope on the subwoofer channel), two or four-channel input mode selection, assignable preamp output source and assignable remote level control modes. Noise-killing, highly flexible differential-balanced inputs are also present, as is JL Audio’s Advanced Rollback Thermal Protection System to eliminate annoying thermal shutdown events. A marine version of the amplifier will also be available (M500/3).


Continuous Power Output @ 14.4V / 1% THD+N (RMS Method):
Main Channels: 75W x 2 @ 4 ohms / 100W x 2 @ 2 ohms
Subwoofer Channel: 180W @ 4 ohms / 240W @ 3 ohms / 300W @ 2 ohms
Dimensions: 8.52 in. x 7.09 in. x 2.05 in. (217 mm x 180 mm x 52 mm).
Net Weight: 4.8 lbs. (2.18 kg)
SOUND – “I want a bad-ass sounding system. I want to be able to show it off when I want, but I want my car to still be a car.”
